THIS REMEDY WILL CURE EAR ENFECTIONS WITHIN MINUTES!- this is the best remedy I learned from my parents.All you need is an onion.take a small ring of onion and cut a small piece enough to fit in your ear.I know it sounds gross but it works.Heat the small piece of onion on your stove top till its warm.You don't want it too hot the warm piece of onion in your ear till its just touching the rim of your ear.immediatley you will hear your ear make a pop sound and you'll notice your ear open up be able to hear again. Keep The onion there for about 5 to 10 minutes. Within the time you feel no more pain and feel as if you didn't have an infection at all. It has always worked for me and I'm sure it will work for you.

I'm on my fourth day of antibiotics for an ear infection but my ears were still extremely stuffy. So I cut two long skinny pieces of onion and warmed them for 10-15 seconds in olive oil. I know olive oil is a carrier oil and onions have anticeptic properties so I figured it was worth a shot. Sure enough, after about 30 seconds I did hear a pop. And I can hear! Just in time to watch Nashville & sing-a-long :)

Also bit of advice and reading these comments. Use common sense people! Don't use a piece so small it will get stuck! Don't put anything hot in your ear!


Hello at 2 am. I have been sufferiing fromtge worst pain in my adult life since 5 pm today. Ear ache from sinus cold a few days ago. It was bad enough that i tried everything including the slice oc onion today. Ended up in the er. Thry gave. E a rx for antibiotcs and told me to get some afrin at wally world. Left there in total pain and got the afrin. Took it at about 12 am. Waited for an hour at home. Writhing on the floor. Nothing. Thren i took a hot bath for another hour writhing i the tub. I even prayed to all the gods i could think of because i am agnostic. No good. Got out of the tub and cried on the couch for another hour. I was so desparate i grabbed an onion. Cut it in half. Stuck the whole thing on my bad ear. Whithin minutes the ear finally started to clear. Pain went from a 10 to about a three. Im a believer. Never again will i doubt at least trying a homeopathic thing again. Its been an hour still pain at a three. Thank you. I was freakin out and really hurting. Im putting onion back o till morning. Cant hurt.


THIS WORKS!!!I went to the Dr office because my Jaw and ear hurt. I knew it was a sinus and era infection. Well, my insurance was cancelled and i found this site while sitting in the waiting room depressed. As soon as I got home, I sliced an onion, a rind, a size I knew wouldnt go deep into my ear. I heated it on the stove, checked heat on top of my hand, and inserted it in just as instructed. In a few mintues I could feel wax, drainage. For sinus, I then made a cup of warm water,Like tea, 2 sp apple cider vinegar, tsp off honey and sipped it. 3 hrs later I can say I feel sooo much better. Very little jaw pain but the cider will take 3 times a day for 3 days to really heal. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!! Was afraid id run a hospital bill for hundreds!


I have an onion in my ear now it's been 5 mins and nothing. So far it has been draining I want it so bad to just work! I hate onions so its alot for me to have one in my ear!




Thank you!! My 4 yr old was screaming and we have tried garlic before and it has worked, but it is late and I have none in the house. I chopped up the onion in small pieces and warmed it in the microwave for 10 seconds. I put it in her ear and within seconds she fell back asleep (she is exhausted and in and out of sleep because of the pain). I have noticed it hasn't worked for some people and I want to mention that my onion was very ripe. Know idea if that makes a difference, but thought I would share.


My daughter woke up in the middle of the night screaming I was desperate so I look up remedies this look the easiest so I tried it and she's now sound asleep Thanks


Stop putting food in your ear. Extracting onion juice is easy. Use a hard cheese grater to grate the onion. Place the grated onion in a coffee filter and squeeze to drip into a cup. Then use a sterile ear dropper. No Heat necessary.

This totally worked for my 5 year old daughter. She was crying and miserable. I tried this and after just a few minutes she was sleeping. So incredibly thankful for your post.


I did this treatment hoping for some relief but after about 20-30 min after I removerd the jar from my ear I started getting hives all over my ear and my forehead. Now two hours later I have hives all over my body. I'm not sure why because I eat onion all the time. But I have always been told you don't usually get an allergic reaction to something you had been exposed to the first time. In most cases you develope an allergic reaction to something after 2-3 exposures. Well my ear still hurts, my body is SOOOO itchy and I am covered in hives :( I was so hopeful that this would work for me as it did for others but I am much worse off now than I was before. I NEVER post comments on these threads but I thought since I had a very negative reaction to the steaming onion I should share my story so others can be aware before they try it.
